The question we should be asking in our day is what we share, like, forward and put out into the universe - is it making a positive difference? Does it help advance society and our civilization? Does it help support and lift one another up or does it tear us down?
The question we should be asking is how do our actions support that which is good for this society and civilization? Do our actions support that which is good and healing and supportive for the world, or do they just sow discord, pain, and contempt for one another? Do our actions show what is in our heart and is what we say is in our heart, what truly shows up?
It's easy to be a rabble rouser...
It is too easy to just be a rabble rouser and scream with the masses. It is too easy to just claim the woe is me story and demand attention. It is too easy to not see the bigger picture and connect your mind and body together as one.
We can spew the memes and happy thoughts all day long, but if we can't show the love we proclaim, we are nothing more than a clanging cymbal. We can stand on the street corners and pray to the heavens, but if all that comes out of our mouths is hatred, we have missed why we are praying in the first place.
We can continue unconsciously...
We can continue in our life unconsciously as if we just consume whatever is fed to us through the media and online venues or we can actually become conscious and begin to see life. We can embrace all that is before us or find ways to stand opposed with weapons firing.
It is not up to everyone else to be a conscious individual and human. It is not up to some government leader or politician to do what we cannot do for ourselves. It is up to each one of us to live our life with the highest intention and good so that we lift one another up, not tear each other down.
In this country and throughout the world, there is far too much spewed in a day that does absolutely nothing good for all mankind. We may think it does and in fact, the actions we portray may prove this, but in our hearts we have found darkness.
It is not all those out there that are the problem. It is each one of us. It is each one of us that harbors the pain and past experiences in our own life who have been tricked into believing the lies each one tells themselves daily.
It is each person individually that impacts the world. Each day we are either building up and supporting one another or we are adding to the problems of this world. It is our choice what we do and what actions we take if we truly make this world a better place or we add to its problems.
The choice and actions start within us. If you're looking to those outside of yourself to do this, you have missed the point of being human. For when you listen to everyone but yourself, it is then that you are no longer a human living in a human body but one that is disconnected and numbed from what life truly is.
